Before we move on to our Design Team reveal, we just want to take a moment to update you on our weekly line up here at The Kraft Journal, because we've added two new events and that means that we have something going on here at the blog seven days a week. Here's the new line up.
On Make it Monday with Kraft Outlet, we'll introduce the weekly challenge word or theme and provide you with three of our Designer's projects as inspiration for the challenge. We'll also feature a guest designer now and then. (You'll have until 6:00 p.m. on the following Sunday to enter your own projects into the challenge for a chance to win a feature spot and other prizes as announced).
On Top Three Tuesday, we'll feature the top three projects we selected from the previous week's challenge.
On Watch Us Wednesday, one of our talented Designers will provide you with a challenge-related tutorial using Kraft Outlet products and/or other valuable information you won't want to miss.
On Thursday Trigger, Beth Moore, Design Team Coordinator for Kraft Outlet will provide you with a challenge-related project she created to help trigger your Mojo for this week's challenge.
On Feature Me Friday, we'll feature one of your projects from past challenges and provide you with a button for your blog just for being featured.
On Saturday Special, we broaden our artistic horizons by highlighting Primitive, Folk Art and Vintage items that you can use to inspire your next papercrafting project or to feather your nest.
On Spotlight Sunday, we'll feature products from Kraft Outlet and talk about other store news (like all the new products Babette is adding to the store...so exciting!)
We hope you can join us for all of our events! Okay...now on to the good stuff...
Design Team "Spring Fling" Challenge Reveal
For this week's Spring Fling challenge, Aphra chose to create a card on the softer side. Butter cream yellow floral and blue and white ledger papers are a lovely mix with Brown Kraft Coverweight Cardstock. To create the sweet flower, she used layers of Vintage Dictionary Pages, a Round Metal Edged Grungy Prim Tag, a button, and Black Baker's Twine. The perfect finish to her card is a pair of layered butterflies punched from Translucent Vellum topped off with a pearl. What a lovely way to say "Hello Friend" this Spring!
Audrey used this week's "spring fling" theme to create an Easter card featuring a sweet vintage image, her favorite Buff Ivory cardstock, and several of the newer products from the Kraft Outlet store. Cardstock layered with patterned papers form the base for the card, with a little machine stitching for some edge detailing. A simple computer-printed sentiment and adhesive pearls add an Easter greeting, and tiny snippets of the new Vintage Dictionary Pages adhered to the card edges adds a fun vintage flair. The new ATC Label Rubber Stamp trimmed out on Buff Ivory cardstock adds another layer of detail and frames more adhesive pearls, and a bow of seam binding and Natural Twill Tying Tape finish things off.
